The viral images for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim continue to roll in, and the latest ones feature a big pile of Kaiju poop and a city being rebuilt around the bones of a long-dead Kaiju monster. I love that Del Toro is including all these little details that always seem to be ignored in other big monster and disaster films. Cleaning up Kaiju crap looks like a terrible, terrible job. But I guess someone's got to do it.
Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman. The film is set to hit theaters July 12th, 2013.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even theJaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee —who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
